    Because you get 100ml of the 10% solution for about £13, so at 0.2ml/kg over 9 days = 1.8ml per kg of bun, which means you can do 56kg of bun (e.g 56 1kg rabbits or 28* 2kg rabbits etc) with one bottle of panacur.

    I bet you couldn't do 28 lots of 2kg rabbits for 4 tubes of panacur rabbit!

    Quite a lot of the rescue bunnies will take Panacur liquid if given pn their greens so I dotn see why they would refuse the 'better' tasting paste.

    If you have more than one rabbit living together though you would need to feed them seperately.

    The 10% solution is much more cost effective and the one my vets recommended to use (after advising of the license situation etc etc.)

    well my rabbits most of them are the 5kg mark i find it easier with the lapizol paste mind you
    This is the world we live in,
    And these are the hands we're given.
    Use them and let's start trying,

    Thanks for all the replies - all 7 bunnies need doing at the same time so once the Panacur arrives it looks like I'm in for a fun 9 days

    Most of mine ate the panacur paste OK, except for the two giants of course - the most difficult two to hold and give drugs to, but I'll try it on their cabbage like Sooz said, and hope for the best!

    I've worked it out that it will cost me a quarter of the price of the paste, so worth trying

    Just dot it about in small pieces and they dont tend to notice. You could also try adding a little bit of apple juice or blackcurrant to it in the syringe to improve the flavour if you really want to avoid direct syringe feeding.
